7/12/12 – Garden & Compost

Pyrimidial Orchid from St. Margaret's at Cliffe (a village near Dover in Kent)

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God’s handwriting – a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Introducing “Morning Whispers”

Every day I receive “Morning Whispers” in my Inbox. Brother John, a Franciscan living and working in Kittredge, CO, takes a scripture verse and an image and fashions a meditation. Short, direct, and long-lasting (easy to remember throughout the day). On July 11 verses from Job were used, “Who cuts a channel for the torrents of rain, and a path for the thunderstorm, to water a land where no man lives, a desert with no one in it, to satisfy a desolate wasteland and make it sprout with grass?” Job 38:25-27. The image was of desert grass; the meditation: “Even in the sand, life will burst forth if there is moisture to feed the seeds that have been dormant. Within each of us there is the potential for great good and love if we nurture it. Say yes to the Spirit of life.” See Morning Whispers for 7/11/12.

St. Margaret’s at Cliffe Photo Diary

I have just begun to visit this Photo Diary kept by Tony Morris. Being retired, he is clearly active. I find joy in his photos and in his commentary. I believe you will, too. The image in this post is from his entry for Thursday, June 28, 2012. Thank you Tony.
